MORNING ANNOUNCEMENTS

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2017 – DAY 4

DR. RATTIGAN:

Our “T.A.K.E.S. P.R.I.D.E.” theme of the month is “Trustworthiness.”  This week’s quote is from Barack Obama.  Barack Obama said, “If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists – to protect them and to promote their common welfare – all else is lost.”  Americans have great trust in our form of government and the Constitution was only changed 27 times in 223 years.
